cubic metres of landfill space saved
What We Do
Recovering Energy From Waste
From solid non-hazardous waste from municipal (MSW) and industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) sources. The recovered thermal energy is converted to electricity and steam for use in our community.
Who We Are
Leaders in Ontario Waste Energy
Since beginning operation in 1992, we have processed over 3 million tonnes of waste while complying with Ontario’s stringent environmental standards, some the toughest in the world. Our environmental monitoring programs demonstrate our ability to safely operate in our community.
While the Emerald facility has been in continuous operation since 1992, continual investments in new technology enable us to keep pace with the needs of our customers. Major investments in the facility and amendments to our licenses were made in 2000, 2013 and 2021.
Emerald proposes redeveloping our site to install modern, more efficient technology. The redevelopment will occur in phases, increasing our processing capacity to 2,500 t/d of municipal and commercial waste and our energy recovery rate to 100 MW.
